Telecommunications services supplier Sure, part of the Batelco Group, has announced that it is partnering with Intelligent Energy, the international power technology company, to offer the Upp personal energy device in its retail stores.

“We have all experienced the frustration of a dead or dying phone so we are really looking forward to introducing our customers to Upp, which is an amazing alternative power source for when you need instant energy, anytime, anywhere off-grid to charge your mobile device,” said Mike Fawkner Corbett, Sure’s Head of Mobile.

Flight friendly, Upp is a perfect portable travel companion, which enables mobile users to power USB-compatible portable electronic devices with a single Upp cartridge typically delivering up to one week of energy for smartphones.

Designed to meet the growing demand for portable power driven by an ever-increasing need to power “on-the-go” electronic devices, Upp powers smartphones, wearable technology such as fitness bands, portable speakers, e-readers, portable gaming devices and digital cameras using just hydrogen and air.

Upp comes with its own mobile companion app, which shows users how much energy they have left in their cartridge, the nearest cartridge exchange locations, personal usage statistics, FAQs and customer support. It can be downloaded from the Apple App Store (iOS 5 and higher) or from Google Play for Android devices (Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and higher).

“In this fast changing mobile technology landscape, fuel cells present the latest in clean, portable energy solutions to powering mobile devices off-grid and provide a much longer operating life than a conventional battery. We all know how inconvenient it is when a mobile device runs short of power whilst you are away from a power socket. Upp now enables Sure customers to stay connected longer and use their devices with freedom from the constraints of ever shrinking battery life,” continued Mike Fawkner Corbett.
